    I feel that the boy was Bruce but he wanted a better life so he saw that opportunity... also if that Williamson guy took the child form the mother and never gave it back why didn’t she look for him or go to the police it really doesn’t make sense either she didn’t care or that wasn’t her son

  • Danielle Groves
    Danielle Groves 8 часов назад

    Question why didn't Anderson report her missing child? Granted a family member took him but family kidnap other family members happen more often than you think. I would think that was the same back then.
    I don't think either side other than Walters is really guilty. I just find it out nobody really asks why this wasn't reported.

    I feel like Lessie just really wanted to believe that the boy they found was actually hers. Grief can really mess up a person, especially when it comes to parents losing a child. So I think she just convinced herself that the boy really WAS Bobby, despite her initital doubt, because she was so desperate to get her son back.

    the mum was so desperate to find bobby that maybe they even mistook bruce for bobby and bruce saw that this new life is much better and accpted them. maybe bobby got in an argument with paul and the others and they somehow accidently killed him, for example they pushed him and he hit his head on something hard, and seeing as he was 4 at the time i think he was not very ''durable''. so maybe they burried him and shut up about it. it seems REALLY suspicious that no one noticed he was not there. and if bobby was kidnapped he could have screamed or said something, or maybe the others would have saw the boat.

    I would just like to point something out.Bobby Dunbar/Bruce Anderson was four years old.Four year olds don’t have great memory’s so this boy could have been called Bobby Dunbar by his mother and everyone else he got used to it and preferred being with this family than his kidnapper.Some people seem to be forgetting that this boy was seen being whipped one time which could have happened often.Would you rather be with some who whips you and beats you yet knows your name or with someone who calls you the wrong name but treats you right and loves you?Most likely the happy family.That could of been the case and he would rather stay with his happy family.

    "One family received closure while the other had it ripped from them"
    Did they though? The boy was never proven to be Anderson so technically it seems like neither have closure unless they did another test and found that the DNA was Anderson DNA

    1:36 That quote makes it sound like they were running or jogging back to the camp. You can’t run someone over by walking. This may be a long shot but we learned at the beginning that Bobby broke the strap on his hat. What if while running it flew off his head and no one noticed him falling behind the group to go get it?

    The most interesting thing is besides what happened to the real Bobby Dunbar is also was “Bobby Dunbar” actually an Anderson? They never did DNA testing on the Anderson family. That would be very interesting if he wasn’t an Anderson either.

    I think the culprit is Percy Dunbar. I think this because in the time they were staying in their family cabin it sounded like a holiday/ vacation and Percy went to work but why would you go to work when on holiday? He might have not even be going to work but indeed waiting for Bobby to fall into his trap. Percy was seen coming back from work AFTER Bobby went missing. After they supposedly find Bobby the newspaper article says that Percy claims that his eyes were too small and eyes don't get smaller(as Shane said). And you don't mistake your son for someone else unless you're faking it. And when you find your son who's been missing for 8 months you don't buy him a pony and a bike, you would try and spent time with him because you haven't seen him for 8 months. I also believe that Percy murded Bobby and used Bruce to cover it up. I conclude that Percy Dunbar is guilty for the kidnapping and death of Bobby Dunbar.

    I'm sorry it looks like that one guy William was a pervert and tortured the boys, then saw Bobby along the train tracks, he looked like the his brothers boy and took him and tortured him as well. That poor boy was 4 years old. That is VERY young in development. Torture will have made them mute. Suffice to say, I don't think ol William would have brought the boy back to the mother Anderson either way. He has been gone 15 MONTHS. WTF are you doing man? I can only think this guy was a start of a child serial killer.

    Now that’s just made think as to why bobby didn’t say that he was an Anderson something must of been going on when he was living with Julie Anderson mistreatment or neglect espically being whipped by that man if that was his uncle and for her aswell for her to loose all her kids as well sketchy much. So maybe that was why he didn’t say anything when she came to look at him, he stayed quiet and pretended to be the Dunbar’s boy. Boy that that hurt my brain just a theory tho.

  • Queen of the Memes
    Queen of the Memes 11 дней назад

    Bobby was probably kidnapped by William and made the story up and the Anderson family tried to go with it as best as they could
    I don’t think Paul did it because he had a lot of witnesses
    William probably lost Bruce or Bruce was accidentally killed and than he found Bobby and said he was his son. Bobby is young so he would just accept everything.
    That’s a theory though

  • Mystery Human

    What happens if he isn’t a Anderson either? Then that’s two kids missing! One supposed to be in the care of a man who if he did test negative for the andersons would have kidnapped him but then there’s still two kids missing and a unidentified boy who’s clearly been kidnapped there could potentially be three kids involved oh my god this is confusing. Has this man kidnapped three children and they just ended up with the only one alive? God knows

    Ok, I've only watched half of this video so far, but here's my theory; That Walters guy was looking after Bruce Anderson and something happened to him, either he died or Walters lost/left him idk, and then he either abducted or adopted Bobby as a "replacement". The reason he didn't return him straight away was perhaps to allow time for Julia Anderson to forget some details of her sons appearance, or to use the excuse of the child's ageing to explain any differences, as well as to convince the child of his new identity. That's my theory at least.
